Mexico to Seattle - Day Thirty-four

It is only a few minutes past 1731 when at 40 deg 26.928 min north 124 deg 35.843 min west we celebrated our rounding of Cape Mendocena. This puts us roughly 93 miles from the Oregon/California state line. Today, we did experience some wind 20 to 25 and moderate seas. At the cape the wind picked up an additional 5 knots and the seas increased proportionately. However, it did not come close to the rounding of Point Reyes for which we are very happy. As we push forward, the weather looks good into Sunday night and we should make good progress. It is supposed to worsen at that time, but our hope is to be beyond the affected area. Tomorrow, we will make a short stop to refuel. Until then.
